IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Dave -

I hope this is OK with you.

I've called her Mary Augusta Ward even though Mrs Humphry Ward is the author associated with the book in Gutenberg, where it is the first edition used.

Do you have a view on this?

MW coming up.

edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. All of her recorded books appear to have MAW as the author.
